Mr. Editor :
Many people have been asking
and complaining about the farmer
of tomorow, saying that he will
have no one to help him on the
farm and therefore he could have no
good farm. But I think if the far
mer will do his 6hare he will have a
very good farm. Why if the far
mer of to-morrow does not be. the
most prosperous of all men it will
be his own fault, and to be a pros
perous farmer he must let his car
rest awhile, and stay at home to see
after the hauds and if necessary roll
up his sleeves and get behind the
The farmer of to-mcr.ow will be
the happiest, healthiest, wealthiest
and wisest of all raen. Of course
he will be the happig i because,
who can be happier than a happy
go-lucky-farmer. He is healthy be
cause he takes plenty of fresh air
and takes plenty of vigorous exer
cise out in the field p owing old
Mike. He is wealthy becase he
raises a regular "Hoove " crop of
corn, potatoes, flour md every
thing that is good to .at. He is
wise because of being a farmer.
My vision of a farmer starts with
the crowing of the roosters very
early in the morning. The neigh
bors roosters are trying to see which <
one can out-crow the other, and it !
seems as if their throat will burst '
in the contest. It is strange that I

I have almost forsaken my vision ?
of the early morning on the farm, '<
which began with the crowing of 1

that he looks toward the eastern

On every sprier, on every blade of

Next we see him standing by the

After his home duties are done,
I see the happy farmer over on the
hill still whistling his merry tune,
with a every now and then a little
intermission of ''Come up Mike." ?
Onward he plows in the heat of the
sun. Old Mike must be deaf or he '

At the hour of twelve we see the
happy farmer sitting at the dinner
table by the side of his little coun
try wife. When the meal is over ?
nice little chat for desert is served.
Back to the field the fanner goes
to his steady work. As he passes
the corn fields a deep smile comes
over his face as the thoughts run
tb rongh his mind of a crib over
flowing with corn.
At eve-tide as the sun is quiet
ly going to her rest behind the
crimson folds of the sky, we see the
happy farmer coming up the lane,
still whistling his tune of "My
Country tis of Thee" mixed up with
the help of "Tipperary," a little
wife stands at the gate waiting for
his return. Thus the day closes
leaving the happy couple strolling
hand in hand from the barn yard,
while the mighty sun kisses the
world good night.
